If you're planning to change jobs in the coming years, some industries are going to give you more opportunities to find a new position than others.
While the technology and health care industries are projected to see a tremendous amount of job growth in the next five years, so too are a number of smaller industries, like translation services and alcohol wholesalers, according to a new CareerBuilder study.
Overall, the United States is expected to create roughly 8 million new jobs between 2014 and 2019, a 5 percent increase. CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson said around one-third of all U.S. industries are expected to outperform the national average for employment growth over the next five years.
"While it's not surprising that technology and health care made the list, the accumulation of new jobs will take place within a diverse mix of industries requiring a broad range of skills and experience," Ferguson said in a statement.
Here are the 20 industries that are projected to add at least 10,000 jobs in the next five years and the job growth percentage that each is expected to experience:
- Translation and interpretation services: 36 percent
- Specialty hospitals (except psychiatric and substance abuse): 29 percent
- Residential remodelers: 26 percent
- Home health care services: 25 percent
- Wine and distilled alcoholic beverage merchant wholesalers: 25 percent
- Electronic shopping: 23 percent
- Environment, conservation and wildlife organizations: 22 percent
- Continuing care retirement communities: 21 percent
- Marketing consulting services: 21 percent
- Offices of physical, occupational and speech therapists, and audiologists: 21 percent
- Computer systems design services: 21 percent
- Portfolio management: 18 percent
- Solid waste collection: 17 percent
- Internet publishing and broadcasting, and Web search portals: 17 percent
- Exam preparation and tutoring: 17 percent
- Nail salons: 16 percent
- Beer and ale merchant wholesalers: 16 percent
- Medical laboratories: 16 percent
- Pet care services (except veterinary): 16 percent
- Sports and recreation instruction: 15 percent
The study is based on data from Economic Modeling Specialists Intl., CareerBuilder's labor market analysis division, which pulls data from over 90 national and state employment resources.
